Dear Colleagues,


I am honored to serve as the 17th President of Asian Pacific Confederation of Chemical Engineering. As promised at closing ceremony of the 16th APCChE congress at Melbourne, I’ll work with you to continue the good practice of our confederation by promoting sustainable chemical engineering in the region, encouraging broader participation of all members, and strengthening our confederation with initiatives for developing economies.

The next APCChE Board Meeting will be held in 2016 at the 23rd Regional Symposium on Chemical Engineering (RSCE 2016) in Vung Tau City, Vietman next 27 - 28 October 2016. Vietnam is a location  that is convenient for most of the board members and fulfill our missions as well. I’ll work with you to make a decision soon on the exact date and time of the next Board Meeting during the RSCE 2016.

I thank you all for your considerable contribution to the confederation and look forward to your sustainable support and leadership.


With kind regards,

Guohua CHEN

President, APCChE
